Because it bears repeating for some of the fact-challenged, supposedly "reality-based" liberals

I noticed on my Site Meter referrals page that I'm getting hits from The Blog That Shall Not Be Named again, and one of that blog's fans decided to be as willfully blind as the blog's author to what I spelled out plainly about the undeniable fact of Tom DeLay attending the funeral of Pope John Paul II with the unofficial congressional delegation. How can I make it any more clear to people who remain forever ignorant because they favor their prejudices over facts and cannot admit error?

I mean, if I link to a Google news search about the congressional delegation to the funeral, will it matter?

How about a link to this story, which states:
"I have had the extraordinary opportunity to be a witness to history as a member of the congressional delegation attending the funeral of Pope John Paul II..."

"There was already, however, one unexpected develop ment: Denny Hastert had been rushed to the hospital earlier in the day with an attack of kidney stones. The delegation would now be led by Majority Leader Tom DeLay."

[Large-lettered emphasis added above and below for the benefit of the willfully blind author of The Blog That Shall Not Be Named and his equally willfully blind fans.]

Or this story, which states:
Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) was hospitalized yesterday for removal of a kidney stone and will not lead the House delegation to the Vatican, according to Hastert spokesman Ron Bonjean.

Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) was leading the delegation instead. It left yesterday evening for the funeral of Pope John Paul II tomorrow morning.

Or this story, which states:
The U.S. congressional delegation to the pope's funeral will include U.S. Reps. Tom DeLay, R-Sugar Land, and Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston. The delegation was to be led by House Speaker Dennis Hastert, but he required kidney stone surgery Wednesday.

Or this story, which states:
A bipartisan congressional delegation is joining President Bush in Rome for Pope John Paul II's funeral.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas will lead 14 Republican and 12 Democratic lawmakers

Or, finally, this story, which states:
Some of most most famous Catholics in Congress plan to attend Pope John Paul's funeral even though they won't be part of the official U-S delegation.

Speaker Dennis Hastert will lead a House delegation of 26 members, including Majority Leader Tom DeLay, Representative John Boehner of Ohio -- and New York Congressman Charles Rangel.

Is that clear enough yet, folks? Do I need to keep repeating it whenever somebody comes here to make some more half-witted, ignorant remarks like Brandon's? Well, I won't. Anyone else who comes here to display their incompetence, willful ignorance and complete inability to conduct a simple internet search will be shot on sight ignored.
